^^ Reminds me of this one below on LaTrobe Street.

Wouldn't care if it doesn't go up at all.

Actually prefer what's there already.

This had been approved, so it's just if it get's financed.

looks very average, especially the interiors, and for such a prominent spot

Seems to be a pattern with this architect thinking cheap concrete with obvious join marks and slightly darker colours in bits makes for good design in real life?

Just another filler, and not a good one at that.

Look at all those windows on the side boundary ! Bet purchasers arnt told they could be covered up by a new tower next door ! And interesting how it fits the height limit envelope, with 40m front bit, 10m setback - wonder why the citadenes hotel didnt do that ? The whole building is boxed in ! Also bit crazy to have giant windows looking north over Bourke Street - not only will this mean hot apartments (unless special thermal glass panels), but everyone will see in, bet the curtains will be always pulled.

^^ What's going on here? Are they expecting a lot of dust from next door's development?

Development & Planning

Journal Student Living's move on 500 Swanston Street headlines a fresh drive of student accommodation projects looking to call Carlton home. The $60 build would be Journal's second Melbourne project after 18-32 Leicester Street which is in the hands of Icon Construction. Journal Student Living is backed by South African company Redefine Properties.

The marriage of old and new can be a difficult process, particularly when the existing structure has intrinsic heritage value. In previous times Fitzroy's 237 Napier Street served as the home of furniture manufacturer C.F. Rojo and Sons. Taking root during 1887, Christobel Rojo oversaw operations though over time the site would become home to furniture manufacturer Thonet.

The former site of John Batman's home, Batman's Hill is entering the final stages of its redevelopment. Collins Square's final tower has begun its skyward ascent, as has Lendlease's Melbourne Quarter Commercial and Residential precinct already. Melbourne Quarter's first stage is at construction and involves a new 12-storey home for consultancy firm Arup along with a skypark.

When a site spans 19,280 square metres, it becomes a 'district'. That's the case according to the development team behind the Jam Factory's pending overhaul. Reporting on the project to date has focused on the close to 60,000 square metres of new commercial space that is earmarked for the site, but more importantly from a layperson's perspective is the extensive new public realm that is planned as part of the development.

Sustainability & Environment

Cbus Property's office development for Medibank at 720 Bourke Street in Docklands recently became the first Australian existing property to receive a WELL Certification, Gold Shell and Core rating. The WELL rating goes beyond sustainable building features with a greater focus on the health and well-being of a building's occupants.
